Benefits of Heating Your Home with Oil

Today, the home energy market offers countless options. How can you be sure that you’ve chosen the best fuel for your budget, your home, and your safety?

As an oil heat consumer, you can take advantage of the many benefits that home heating oil has to offer. When you choose oil heat for your home, you can trust that you’re heating responsibly when it comes to safety, cost savings, energy efficiency, and even environmental protection. Now cleaner and greener than ever before, oil heat continues to be the leading home heating fuel in both price and quality. Learn more about the benefits of heating with oil below.

Energy Efficiency

Oil heat is an efficiency leader in the fuel industry, with efficiency ratings of new oil heat appliances ranging from 83% to 95%. High-efficiency equipment requires less energy to operate, resulting in lower energy bills.

Cost Savings

Upgrading your current oil-fired boiler or furnace can save up to 30% on your annual fuel bills. Once your home is outfitted with an energy-efficient oil heating system, the savings will keep rolling in. Oil heat ranks as one of the best value home heating fuels on the market, with low rates made possible by easy access to suppliers and a competitive market.

Home Safety

Choose a fuel you can count on. Unlike other gas options, oil heat is non-explosive and emits noticeable signs of soot or smoke if a leak occurs. Oil-fired equipment that is properly maintained will greatly reduce the risk of unexpected malfunctions. To keep your system operating at peak safety standards, don’t forget to schedule your annual tune-up!


When you heat your home with oil, you are in charge of your fuel supply. You oil is stored safely in a corrosion-resistant storage tank right on your property. Automatic delivery customers can count on their energy supplier to keep their tank full, or will-call customers can easily monitor their own tank levels on an easy-to-read fuel gauge.

Environmental Protection

The oil heat industry has made successful strides towards a clean, green future. Massachusetts is even taking it a step further by replacing oil heat with Bioheat®, a blend of traditional oil and biofuel made from plants and food byproducts. Bioheat® burns cleaner than traditional oil’s already clean-burning standard and draws on a renewable energy supply.

Reliable Value

Oil heat customers have the opportunity to do business with their local fuel provider of choice. This isn’t always an option for homeowners who use gas or electric energy sources, which are often run by large, impersonal companies. Choosing a full-service fuel company from your local community means prompt and personal service, timely fuel deliveries, affordable budget plans, top-tier equipment options, and so much more.
